False-nationality names

"False-nationality name" is a term I just made up. It refers to a name that contains a national adjective, even though the thing with that name didn't come from that country. For example, Russian dressing is not from Russia (not even with love). French fries didn't come from France, and the game of Chinese checkers was not invented in China.

Know any other examples?
